As an avid listener of mystery/detective genres, I noticed the female authors are appearing more frequently on the NYT best seller fiction list.  Of course, Patterson and his ghost writers publish weekly and Tom Clancy is resurrected to write another book, but Sandford, Crais, Connelly, Baldacci and newer male authors appear only infrequently.


The NYT list is based on sales, so does this trend mean more women are buying the genre? That men are buying them as well?


If you're a fan of the genre, have you noticed?  If you're reading or listening to the new wave of female authors, what's your take?  Do you perceive differences in topics, perspective, style, etc.?
